to keep stock out of a wheat, corn or
cotton field to make a crop, the less
inducement there is to cultivate the

this were removed. The poor, who

the owners. This remark is based on
my own experience, this summer. I
have kept a number or young nogs ior
a neighbor all summer, in a good
clover field, well fenced, for nothing,
because it is far more cheaper for me
to fence them in, one 6mall field, than
out of several large corn fields. It

so many small, shad-bellied swine.
Jumping sheep, and unruly cattle,

use of it is worth. Hence, many mill

that would be cultivated, to the incal

is barely able to pay for fifty acres
and a mule, could plow, plant, sow,
and gather in his crops, without the

stock he may choose to keep. Give
"this encouragement to buy land in the

"TRio Planted This Old Apple
We make the following beautiful

Marshall P. Wilder, delivered at

in September last :

The Proper Season to Cut Tim
ber. A letter from Dr. B. A. Wright, of
iMaumee unio, appears m the
Xorth Western Farmer, for November
in which the Doctor states that after
several years of experiments and obser
vation, together with what he has
learned from others, he has arrived at
the following conclusions :
To have timber last well, in all
circumstances, and to secure the most
heat material in fire-wood, the best
time to cut in his locality is during
September and October. Timber cut
in these months will be solid and firm;
the sap will mostly dry in the timber,
filling the interstics between the fibres
and growths, rendering the timber or
lumber heavy, shrinking or checking
very little, with a very tenacious fibre.
The sap is in so high a 6tate of con
centration that the heat effects it very
To have timber decay most rapidly
cut it in April, May, and June. This
is the test time to deaden, or cut off
shrubs to have the stumps. rot out
November, in some seasons and
places, would do well, and even De
cember and January, would be better
than March, etc.
Milk Soured ry Thunder. A
correspondent of the Country Gentle
man expresses the opinion that the
cause of milk becoming soar during
thunder storms is not any mechanical
contusion produced by the noise of the
thunder, but the presence of ozone, a
peculiar modification of oxygen, which
is produced in large quantity by the
action cf electricity in the air.
A Delewarean has a peach orchard
covering 300 acres. From the peaches
raised upon this vast orchard he con
trives to save 60,000 bushels far the
New York market.
We cften hear farmers and others
in this country, say our land is so roll-
It j, :iC need uct talk of draining
lands. This fc? a mistake. We have
thou-rnds of acres of our best lnd3
that will never b9 worth anything un
til they are drained. One-half or our
bottom lands must bo ditch drainea
before they can be made really useful.
Then again, we have lands that re

Eoiispfihe year.' On the contrary,
where the subsoil is so compact that
the pores of the surface soil will con
tinue filled with water for several
days after a heavy rain, the evidence
will be conclusive that a regular sys
tem of under-draining would be a val
uable improvement in the manage
ment of that land. When cultivated
fiei-s seem to be a long time In be
coming sufficiently dry to plow, or be
woxked, it is a certain evidence that
the soil can never be cultivated with
satisfactory profit, until all the Surp
lus water can be readily collected and
conveyed away in under-drain.4.
There need be no apprehension that
any injury will ever arise in conse
quence of making a drain where one
was not needed. C3 no drain can draw
away any water from the surface soil
that te really required to promote the
growth of plants. The soil will retain,
by capillary attraction, all the mois

over the entire field. When water
will stand in depressions so long that
it drowns the soil by saturating every
particle so thoroughly that the parts

drains will be found of great advan
tage. Tree Seeds.
Believing the free distribution of
seeds, cuttings, fcc, should be encour
aged, and that it might and will be
done to the mutual benefit of the read

be included in the list of those engag

Hackberry, and last but not least, the

Tbe seeds of this tree should be
mixed with moderately moist sand or
soil, and kept in a cellar or cool place,
free from severe frosts and planted in
spring in goood rich soil, will make a
good growth the nrst year.
Thousands of trees have been plant
ed the present year, by our prairie res
idents and landowners, for fuel, shel
ter, grove3, ornaments, et3., and we
hope tho coming year will find them
still more fully awake to their interests
in this matter. Persons wisnmg any
of the above seeds 6hould enclose a
stamp or two to prepay postage, pack
ins: etc. Would be pleased to receive
from others tree seeds or cuttings of
varieties other than the above.
The above we find in the Jiural
World, and commend the spirit. Our
farmers want to be most obliging to
each other. Such kind acts as the
above will soon result in prood. Let
us follow the example of Mr. Clark.

In which yon ask II I have any objections to sending

n relation to the character of the Waiter (erape. I
have never indorsed the character or usefulness ol
vines, or other articl of any description, and would
not at my present stage of life were it not for two
reasons whlcn seem sunicient. first, I know the
Walter Grape will meet the preiudicea widespread
throughout the country, caused by the worthlessness
in most localities of many of Its predecessors. Sec
ond, because I can say from personal observation
that the Walter is the best variety I have had any
knowledge of, and I think I have cultivated nearly
all that have been recommended, discarding them
ail and falling back upon the Concord and Hartford
Proline as vinevard varieties. I am interested in
knowing that the fruit of the Walter rrom lanrer
ench year as the vine grows older, being last year
ruilyone-tnira larger man u was two years ago. it
grows well ; sets fruit well. I have seen it ripe sev
eral times before Hartford, and I have never seen
any mildew on Its fruit or on Its large and thick, but
Delaware shaped fiiliage. The flavor of the fruit I
think superior to any other variety. You say in
rour circular It is a seedling of tbe Delaware and
Diana; I think the character of each of these vane
ties is quite distinguishable In the Walter, particu
larly that of the Delaware. I aisd think it would
make a wine of hlith character. I bave visited It
annually since it first bore, six years ago, three times
in Ulster Co., N. Y., in a low valley, where the Isa
bella seldom ripens, and each time It was fully ripe
In August. I have seen it each of the three past sea
sons in Poughkeeisie, ripening at the same time,
excepting last year, when tbe constant rains pre
vented all varieties from maturing at their usual
time, but it perfected Its fruit by the middle of tep
tember. The raisins of the last mentioned crop I
have seen and eaten, which were good. From its
